Tango is a partner dance that originated in the 1880s along the River Plate, the natural border between Argentina and Uruguay, and soon spread to the rest of the world. Early tango was known as tango criollo (Creole tango). Today, there are many forms of tango extant. Popularly and among tango dancing circles, the authentic tango is considered to be the one closest to the form originally danced in Argentina and Uruguay. On August 31, 2009, UNESCO approved a joint proposal by Argentina and Uruguay to include the tango in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists.

The introduction level gives you a fun and light-hearted introduction to Argentinian Tango. Here you learn that it is an improvisation dance in which 'anything is possible', so long as it can be led and followed. This is why the introduction level starts with the art of leading and/or following, and you learn a number of basic figures and how to improvise on them. If you have any specific wishes, you can make them known during the first lesson and they will be included in the course as far as possible.

The introduction course is meant especially for people without any experience in Argentinian Tango.

During the intermediate level course the basic figures from the beginners level will be briefly repeated and added to with a new repertoire. More attention will be paid to the music, and you learn the technique of walking. For, as many maestros of the tango say, “If you can walk, you can dance the tango!” If you have any specific wishes, you can make them known during the first lesson and they will be included in the course as far as possible.
